Bob : "Just like a Swiss watch !", the best time was kept at the Frost's 1st year !
Refering to "On the road Again" Having seen 9 acoustics sets at the Warfield and New Year's, as well as the Red Rocks shows, Veneta and several a "Music Never Stopped" since '76 this first set definitely holds its own!
Although, I missed the last couple years at Stanford, it was the best west coast venue bar none ! (Indoors, probably Marin Civic). And it's best shows were this and the next day, however '85 was indeed comparable, and unique itself. Even the weakest '83 was great just being there!
Everything sounds great, but Bob's guitar is missing. I adjusted the equalizer to get everything perfect. The vocals are really fantastic. Drums are fine, I can hear the electric piano, Jerry's leads, but Bob's rhythm guitar is completely missing. If you don't care about his guitar and would rather just hear Jerry playing, then this is perfect for you.

Well Played '82
The Dew is to die for, highly emotional and powerful playing by Garcia. Had to throw that out there first and foremost. The rest of the show is well played. While the Bama>GSET opener is one of the most frequent from the early '80s, Phil's bass windup into GSET is a total crowd pleaser and this version is energetic and zesty. While the less common Road Again > BIODTL may be viewed as more interesting on paper then on tape, the back end more than makes up for things, with a punchy Dupree's, and spiraling MNS > Deal.
Set 2 starts with the unusual T Stones > Touch coupling (the only other T Stones opener I know of is 6/20/91, a killer Pine Knob gig) and as I've noted before, the early versions of both songs contain slightly different lyrics as well as chord progressions, adding an interesting slant to the numbers. To me, the Estimated > Eyes pair is one of the real stand outs, great outro jam from Estimated and Eyes just rolls so smoothly. As noted above, the Dew is great, the clear highlight of the back end of the 2d set.
The recording is generally clean SBD, with limited detection of the cassette gens.
Pick it up.

how do ya say
The train -- or, shall i say bus -- left the station right-on time this day (probably somewhere near quarter after 4). It kept building momentun without gaining too much speed... while remembering that "...too much of everything is just enough." One can hear the motors rev and the wheels pick up speed most 'bout 2/3 the way through Saturday Night. That 'ol monkey threw that 'ol engine into overdrive and the throttle hit that 1 spot, you know the 1. :-) Ahhhh.... 1 more Saturday night!...!!!

First West LA Fadeaway on west coast. Amazing show. I was at so many shows during 1982 , this one was EXTRA fun. Phil was smiling alot & Bobby was flirting with all us girls in the front row. Great Venue, lovely day.....Sound is kinda windy, but worth a listen.

What a day it was
An absolute beautiful venue (debut) and my first show. The experience and the music are something I will never forget. Not knowing most of the songs (at that time) that they played, I was blown away by the energy of Estimated->Eyes, and the Dew floored me (the dr*gs helped I'm sure). I made it a point to always get back to Frost over the years, but nothing compared to 10/9/82.

Great show at a great venue. Nice sunny day on this lawn amphitheater. Lots of songs in the first set including a On the Road Again that transitions into Beat It On Down the Line just like a Swiss Watch. Great Duprees too. The Morning Dew is one of the best of all time.
